Stupid, meaningless injuries

Posted by Rob on 24th September 2014 in Exercise |

So, I’ve been exercising for a few weeks, on and off. Sometimes lifting weights, sometimes on the exercise bike, sometimes a little not-very-good-at-yoga, some stretching, some walking. It’s all been gentle enough, nothing too strenuous — because I’m too fat for that — and it’s just helping me get from A to B.  And this morning I was looking forward to another day of lifting weights.  I’d done a little of my insult to yoga with my wife in the morning, and done some stretches, and I felt nice, warmed up and limber as I sat at my desk, getting my work lined up.

Then I stretch, and suddenly I’ve managed to pull my shoulder out.

And it’s really painful.

And it’s ridiculous.  I don’t feel like I did anything foolish, or even got it as reward for putting in some effort.  No, I don’t injure myself doing something silly, lifting too much weight or pushing things too far — I somehow manage to injure myself while sitting at my desk and thinking.
